    Felon looking for CDL & truck driving opportunities
    Does anyone know of a truck driving company that will agree to hire a convicted felon once I get my CDL? Job Link has agreed to pay for my CDL training, but first I must get written agreement from a truck driving school that will agree to hire me once I have the CDLs. My felon is less than 5 years. Thanks

    You will have to call some of the bigger companies like Schneider, Werner, JB Hunt, etc and see just who will hire you. You'll have to get a OTR job most likely though.

    You can call up your local trucking school and see who they would recommend. You will have to sign some kind of contract with the trucking company saying that you will work for them so many months (usually 12) and they will re-pay your school tuition.

    You actually did it backwards. You should have called up your local trucking school and talked with them first. They would know all the ins and outs of just how to do everything.
